This Babymetal video is the strangest thing I’ve seen online this year (excluding Republican debates):
JPop crossed with death metal, plus a dollop of religious cultural appropriation. Spotted via Cory Doctorow, Babymetal, live on Colbert! in which he describes Babymetal as “Japan’s greatest synthetic all-woman heavy metal band.” I am prepared to believe it.
There’s also an official version of the video that is odd in different ways.
